The main themes which Antti Ylönen has been dealing with in his art are time and emotion. The favourite material for him to express these issues is wood. Essential elements in his art are sophisticated design together with spiritual, meditating ambience, elements which together form a timeless and sensitive experience. In order to feel the warmth and silky surface of the material the audience is usually encouraged to touch his art works.
Antti Ylönen has joined many international projects in Spain, Turkey and India. In Japan he has worked several times, twice in Studio Youkobo in Tokyo and has also carried out a commissioned sculpture for the Minamisoma Concert Hall.
Ylönen is one of the founders and home artists of International Art Centre KulttuuriKauppila in Ii, in the North of Finland.
